Any 'altered' photos should be entered in the Open or Modified categories. This does not mean normal post editing like exposure, contrast, shadow, highlight, tone, misc. This would be photos that are comprised of more than one or merged items, or extremely altered. 


We no longer have a monthly competition. It is a photo review by the club with  member suggestions and input. It allows members to see the creativeness of other members and to question and learn new Technics and methods of taking as well as editing their own photos. Members are ask to bring their photos on a thumb drive to the 2nd meeting of the month (3rd Thurs), they are loaded to the club laptop for viewing. Photos need to be grouped together by categories for ease of loading to computer. Each member is encouraged to elaborate on their photos but not required ( what inspired them to take the photo, where, when & how, any special editing or procedures used to take the photo). And ask for or share tips for improving their photos as well.
